To all the Pensioners it has been my great pleasure and privilege to meet on the Royal Anglian sponsored Chapel Services, best wishes, stick with the plan and stay safe. May not see you this year, but certainly looking forward to 2021.

On behalf of the Royal Artillery Association we would like to wish all the in-pensioners good health and to stay safe.

Thank you to all the staff who are working hard to ensure you keep well.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter.

Sending love to Brian, George and Colin - and the wider RHC community. We too hope to be singing again soon, and that you will come back to join us. In the meantime, wishing you well - stay safe, and happy!

Wishing everyone in there to stay safe and stay well. Thinking of you all and all the wonderful staff and in pensioners. Please look after my grandad George. (IP 125) Tell him we’re all thinking of him, love him very much and miss him everyday.

Good morning,

I just wanted to take a couple of minutes, to show my appreciation of your service and to show you are no alone in this crazy world.
I hope you are all staying safe and as well as can be expected in these challenges times.
So from one veteran to another stay safe and thank you all for your service.

Wishing my uncle Ossie Telford all the best through this lock down period. We know how difficult it must have been for you to miss dad's funeral on 20 March because of the lockdown. Hope all is well with you. Bob and Kath.

Hi to all but especially my friend Patrick Cody, I've sent him an email too. Keep well
